Italian Nationalist Leader Pledges “New Europe” After Wave of Populist Victories

Matteo Salvini struck a triumphant tone after a wave of populist victories in European Parliament elections.

Matteo Salvini, Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister and leader of the nationalist ‘Lega’ Party, struck a triumphant tone on Sunday after a wave of populist and right-wing victories across Europe in European Parliament elections.

Salvini’s party came in first place in Italy, securing around 34% of the vote and far outpacing traditional center-right parties and its left-populist governing partner. Right-wing populist and euroskeptic parties also won big in major EU member states such as France, where Marine Le Pen’s National Rally party triumphed over incumbent French President Emmanuel Macron’s centrist party.

The UK’s Brexit Party, which participated in the EU election on account of Britain’s ongoing membership in the globalist political union despite a 2016 national referendum in which the British public voted to leave the group, won big, representing a renewed call for the nation to exit the EU after Tory Prime Minister Theresa May’s embarrassing failure to deliver on Brexit.

Salvini has shown himself as one of the boldest among a new generation of nationalists, willing to directly challenge the neoliberal hegemony of multinational corporations, big banks and corrupt oligarchs that have dominated moribund institutions such as the European Parliament for decade.

Salvini was followed in his celebration of Sunday’s populist victories by Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban. Orban’s Fidesz Party won in Hungary with a whopping 52% majority, and the nationalist leader pledged to work with any political party with a presence in the European Union that would fight to stop mass immigration.

Nationalist leaders such as Salvini and Orban differ from Euroskeptic movements in nations such as Britain in seeking to reform the EU as a voluntary union of peoples and nations respecting and promoting national sovereignty. With the populist presence in the European Parliament greater than ever before, they could be a step closer to realizing their vision of radical change for the antiquated bureaucracy.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro Endorses Donald Trump’s Reelection

Ties have grown between America and Brazil in recent years.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro announced his endorsement of President Donald Trump in an event signing a new trade agreement between the United States and Brazil on Tuesday in the South American country.

God willing I will be able to attend Trump’s second inauguration,” said Bolsonaro at a press conference detailing the new agreement with US National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien. Bolsonaro wanted to emphasize that he does not wish to “interfere” with the US election, but that his support for President Trump comes from the heart.

Bolsonaro and Trump have coordinated on policy to contain Venezuelan and Cuban-style Communism within South America. NSA O’Brien stated that relations between the US and Brazil have “never been stronger” at the trade agreement signing. The US designated Brazil a “non-NATO” ally in 2019, and the two countries have worked together on environmental policy to deter wildfires in the Amazon rainforest.

The new “mini-trade deal” signed between the two countries will regulate telecommunications exchanges between the US and Brazil. Brazil, which is the second-most populous nation in the New World with 211 million people, is an increasingly significant country in global business and diplomatic affairs.

Bolsonaro himself is somewhat of a right-wing populist in the veins of global leaders such as Viktor Orban, Andrzej Duda, and President Trump. He won election in 2018 in a landslide, capitalizing on alienation among the Brazilian electorate for the socialist-style governments that had governed the country for over a decade, mass crime, and preferences for gun rights.

Establishment liberals frequently receive endorsement from globalist leaders across the world, and never think twice about not crying “foreign interference” in the event that it benefits them. President Bolsonaro isn’t an American, but it certainly bodes well to see the leader of the Americas’ second largest country develop a strong working relationship with President Trump.
